Hope you are having a blessed week! I am freezing and praying for the folks who have no shelter today and tonight. I cannot imagine being in this wind chill for long periods of time and yet many people endure it with no break. And then that thought took me back to the book Primal by Mark Batterson and I again began wondering if my heart truly breaks for the things that break the heart of God! And there is no doubt God's heart must break for people with no shelter. And then that thought took me to one of my memory verses last year Psalm 91:1 "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty". I love that verse. I even bought a door knocker that we can't use on our door because it had that verse on it. Ask me what I plan to do with a door knocker??? Well, I thought about a small shadow box hanging on the wall but looked in 3 stores last weekend and did not find one! So for now it lives on the counter waiting for a home. And I just smile when I see it because I desperately want my life to reflect that my "rest is in the shadow of the Almighty"!!!
OK sorry that was so random I am not sure where that tangent came from...I was only planning to share this next bit (and yes I shared it with Mr Paul but decided it was important enough to post in two places ;-) )
Below is a link to Beth Moore's blog. She is doing an on-line book club using her newly released book "So Long, Insecurity - you've been a bad friend to us". If any of you ladies would like to read along she will start this Thursday (tomorrow) with a reading assignment of a couple chapters and a couple discussion questions for the blog community to post answers/discussion. I think the plan is to post new assignments once a week. She has over 5,000 readers signed up to participate...I cannot WAIT to see what God has in store!
If you don't want to read, please pray for those who are reading to get a "fresh Word" from the experience.
If you need help getting a book let me know. Lifeway has them as well as christianbook.com
